I really love this fun summerycolour pallet they gave us to work with. I broke out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and set to work with the Prehistoric stamp set.

I am so over the moon with this set! I need to use it again with my copics. My son thinks its awesome that I can make him Dinosaur cards! I kept everything really simple following the colour pallet provided. I even recorded a video of making this card for you all!

I have a fun little video of this card. I hope you enjoy!

My Favorite Things – Camp Create Day 1

Print

Hey everyone!  I am a little late getting started, but I am hoping to finish all the badges I will have two of them for you all today, the first one is Wonderful Watercolor! It is one of my favourite mediums (who I am kidding they all are!)

Print

So for today’s card I pulled out the My Favorite Things – Farm Friends stamp set (I am going to try something new on my blog and link all the products used at the bottom of this post so they are easy to find) and coloured it all up, There is a video of me colouring all the images attached at the bottom of the post.

Copic colouring on the cow, watercolor background. Be sure to check my blog for a colouring video!

I kept everything super fun and washy in the background, which is something I have really been enjoying doing for the last little while. An awesome sentiment from the same set and a few dots using my Nuvo Drops and this card was complete! That is why I love doing this backgrounds cards and super fun and easy!

This video also includes colouring for a card that will go up following this one!

KKS Florence Finbottom

I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and spent hours working on this no lines mermaid. I love how she came out and that the background is like bubbles filled in to allow there to be lots of white space. I did not keep track of the coloured pencils used for this one as I just kept layering and colouring and did most of it outside enjoying a fire.
